Designer Galliano goes on trial over anti-Semitic remarks

Paris (CNN) — Flamboyant fashion designer John Galliano went trial Wednesday, accused of making anti-Semitic comments against at least three people in a Paris cafe.

Judge Anne-Marie Sauteraud read out a list of the abuse Galliano is accused of hurling at Geraldine Bloch and Philippe Virgitti as proceedings began, including obscenities mixed with remarks about their ethnic backgrounds.

“He said ‘dirty whore’ at least a thousand times,” the judge said.

Galliano said on the witness stand that he had no memory of making the comments.
